Smile of the day

Yesterday the mail brought one envelope addressed to me from one of the para-church organizations that I donate to. It was empty.

I sent them an email comment this morning. Thanks for the smile of the day was the subject.

Yesterday I received your mailing. It was not odd that I received a letter from you, but rather that the mailing was an empty envelope. Hope this did not happen to very many of your letters."
or something to that effect. What I refrained from saying was this. "I assume that it was likely a mailing to request funds. Either, this was a waste of resources, or an ingenious way to impress upon us your need for funding.."
